Q: Help!!! My honey gave me a mini vacation as a newly just retired gift. After 41 years of building submarines I called it quits. She loaded my bike up with all that we needed and as I started to back the bike out of the garage, which is on a incline, I held the front brake on as I slowly backed out. The bike was not running at this time. Next thing I knew there was lots of smoke coming from the brake light switch. This was the beginning of the “aw shit” moment. I jumped off the bike to investigate and found the bottom wire to the switch melting. I squeezed the brake handle and at first nothing happened and my brake lights stayed on but soon after the smoke started again. So I know there’s a problem but I don’t know where to begin looking. Thanks for any advice you can offer.

It turns out there was a recall on a whole lot of HG’s for that switch, and also for the tank mount. I found out the hard way. Check out this link and maybe pass it along on your website.
